Are those actually radar antennas or do they constitute a radio telescope array? Radio telescopes are used as a group to study radio signals in space.

You are most likely correct.

The strange thing about these was the fact that there is no fence of any kind there. You can walk in and among these beast as you please.. I never saw another human but suspect I was on video. Every once in a while you would be there and it is very quiet and suddenly you hear the whir of motors and one or a group of these begin to move to a new setting.. it was very cool.
